Recipe: Nutty Hot Cereal

In an effort to keep my blog generally about endurance related topics I’ve been hesitant to post any recipes.  But recently a number of coaching clients have asked, and of course nutrition is a major factor on athletic performance… so here goes.

 NUTTY HOT CEREAL

It seems like children of our generation were really duped on the whole cereal for breakfast nonsense.  So I’m often asked “What do you eat for breakfast?”.  Normally I eat eggs with left over veggies from the night before.  But in an effort to switch it up a bit, I have recently been eating Robb Wolf‘s Nutty Hot Cereal.  Super simple and fast.

How long does it take:  10 minutes
What you need:  Blender or Food Processor, Medium Saucepan
Ingredients:  

  • 1 C almonds or pecans
  • 1 medium sized apple, quartered
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon (This will help increase insulin sensitivity)
  • 1 C water
  • ** As with any oatmeal type breakfast you should add your favorite berries

Makes 2 cups:  Place all ingredients in blender and puree. Pour into medium sized saucepan. You may need to rinse the blender with an additional 1⁄4 cup of water to get all the cereal. Bring to a boil. Reduce temperature immediately and allow to simmer for 5 minutes covered. If thicker consistency is desired, allow to simmer longer.
